Lilly's Baby Blessing at Primary Children's

After Lilly was born, our bishop recommended us to not wait to give Lilly a name and a blessing. So on July 18, 2011, Bishop Loveless, my Uncle Gary, and Rocky gave Lilly a blessing, while Rachael, Logan and I listened. We taped it, and I want to write it down to share.....

Dear Heavenly Father, by the authority of the Holy Melchizedek Priesthood which we hold, we take this baby in our hands and we give unto her a name and a blessing. The name in which she will be known while she tarries here on the earth and which is in the records of the church shall be, Lilly Mae Loveless. Lilly, at this time our Heavenly Father wants you to know that he loves you very much. And that you are a choice daughter and a choice spirit of His. He also would like you to know that He will send his comforter your way to ease your cares and needs and infirmities in your time of need. Lilly, as you struggle through this life, you will be able to gain experience and knowledge beyond your comprehension.

If it is so be that the Lord sees fit that you shall stay here on earth, you will be a great blessing to not only your friends and family but anyone that you met along the way. You will be a great example of your patients, kindness, love and ability to make others smile. You will have a great network of friends that you can draw knowledge from and wisdom, especially from your mother and your father. Especially that Father which is in heaven.

Lilly, right now you may not have the strength to live this life on your own, but as you continue to heal you will be strengthen not only physically, but spiritually and intelligently, as well. You will be a blessing to your neighbors and the people that are in harms way. You will help bridge gaps between distraught family members and befriend those that are lonely.

Lilly, if it be our Heavenly Fathers will that you shall pass shortly from this life, know that all is well and that you will be able to enjoy all that Heavenly Father has in His celestial kingdom. And that your example will be a shining light, a beacon to all of those that hear your name and know of the struggle that you have had.

Heavenly Father wants you to know that you will not ever be left alone. That the Holy Spirit is here around you and will guide you safely where ever you may go.

This blessing and all other blessings we leave upon your head and we do so in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.
